"By the end of the month, we can get 15,000 [sick people] per day. It is not a secret; there are, let's say, today's figures, and usual math proves that we are going to get these figures soon. By the end of the year, this figure could grow to 20,000 people a day. Our healthcare system is getting ready for such things, we are going to endure this," he said.
